Inspired by the research done at Washington University School of Medicine, which focused on the benefits of tango for individuals with Parkinson's disease, HAPS conducted its own pilot project with a weekly tango class in Fall 2008. The project was so successful that HAPS decided to bring back the tango class as an ongoing HAPS program.

A partner or previous dance experience is not required. To find out more about the HAPS tango class, click here to read the full article written by HAPS tango instructor, Joan Bishop. For more information about class locations and schedule, contact Angelica Rodriguez at 713-313-1652.


"It's not too late in life to learn tango - never too late to nourish the soul."
